3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned handpump Mr Foleys Leeds 23/09/12. A black beer with a white head. A burnt roasty aroma with a little lactic sweetness. Simliar in the mouth but it’s a little thin and the finsih is too short. Promises a reasonable amount in the nose but it sells you a little short.
